Chart of the Day: Growing Texas Support For Marijuana

February 23, 2017

 

Today's chart shows how opinions regarding marijuana legalization in Texas have evolved over the last two years. Data from the University of Texas and Texas Tribune survey of registered voters has found an increasing number of people in support of various forms of marijuana legalization.  

 

 

Interestingly enough, support for medical only legalization declined over the two year period showing that some voters shifted their opinion from being in favor of just medical to supporting some form of adult-use legalization. 

 

Legalization of small amounts for adult-use posted the strongest improvement, gaining 8% over the two year period. 


Just last year, the state of Texas passed a extremely limited medical use bill. This bill allows access to high CBD, low THC marijuana for people with intractable epilepsy that has failed to be effectively controlled by at least two other medications. 


Looking forward, multiple bills regarding marijuana reform have been proposed by Texas lawmakers. If passed, House Bill 81 would decriminalize the possession of small quantities of marijuana. Senate Bill 269 aims to expand access to medical use by amending the existing Compassionate Use Act to remove references to "Low-THC" and by increasing the number of qualifying conditions.
